Opening Hours

Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art


The ARTIST ROOMS display at the Gallery of Modern Art is dedicated to Vija Celmins’ ethereal images of seas, deserts and the night sky, a complete series of landscape and portrait paintings by Alex Katz, and Francesca Woodman’s intimate, surrealist-influenced photographs. Photographs by Warhol and paintings by Ellen Gallagher are also included. Damien Hirst features in an expanded display, which will bring together works from ARTIST ROOMS – such as the iconic Away from the Flock and a recent butterfly painting – with additional loans from further collections. In an exciting addition to the exhibition, a further room opened on 6 August dedicated to the work of the influential American abstract artist Agnes Martin. Three ARTIST ROOMS works are featured alongside five more lent by a private collection, providing a rare opportunity to experience at first-hand the beauty of Martin’s minimalist painting.
